Liposuction in July
I hope you have worn your garment as your surgeon recommends. At this point, you should look good and feel good. This concern you have with a mass in the navel area needs to be addressed by your surgeon. Schedule a follow up visit with him, and voice your concern.
A rock hard lump after abdominal liposuction
The lump over the belly button is likely a collection of blood (hematoma) or a small seroma, and often an aspiration in the office will help them settle down. Let your surgeon have a look as the lumps should be resolving by now.
